    Are Spain’s elected representatives called MPs ?

      A member of parliament (MP) is the representative of the voters to a parliament. In many countries with bicameral parliaments, this category includes specifically members of the lower house, as upper houses often have a different title.

      In Spain, the word ‘parlamento’ — of the same origin as Parliament in English — is used as a common name for all legislative assemblies, and hence ‘parlamentario’ for the member of any of them, which can usually refer to members of:

      – both chambers of the national legislature (Cortes Generales), the Congress of Deputies and the Senate;
      – the regional devolved legislatures of the Autonomous Communities;
      – the European Parliament.

      In Spanish, members of the Congress of Deputies are called ‘diputados’ (deputies), impliying that they are elected to act in the name and on behalf of the people they represent; likewise, it is also usual to call members of the European Parliament ‘eurodiputados’.

        Thanks for that detailed answer. So is the use of ‘MPs’ in paragraph 3 correct?

    “Spain’s ruing Partido Popular (PP)” did you mean “ruling”?
